The Hall County Environmental Health Department strives to accommodate those needing to conduct business with our department while balancing the need for public health awareness during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many of the services our office provides can be handled via phone, email and/or fax. In the interest of protecting the health of both the public and our employees, we encourage our customers to complete and submit applications for Environmental Health services via email, fax, and/or mail.

It is important to note that the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic is ever-changing which may result in changes to public access to our office and/or the priority of services provided.
